Feline Endoscopy Cost?

kimbyannekimbyanne

I don't suppose anyone's cat has had to have a endoscopy recently? Our cat is opening her mouth when she breathes out but only whilst purring. We took her to the vets and she was given antibiotics for suspected laryngitis but they don't appear to have worked as she is still doing it.

The vet said the next step would be an endoscopy to look down the back of her neck. I am just waiting for them to get back to me to let me know when they could book her in and how much it would cost but was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with this?

Thanks

    I don't know about this, you can only ask vet for a quote.

    I do hope your darling cat will be ok.

    oh, I hope its nowt serious. TBH, why not ring around a few local vets pooling quotes- you'll be amazed to see the difference in the costs quoted.

    Thanks. When the vet checked her out on Monday they said her heart and lungs sound fine and that she appears to be a healthy cat.

    It is odd, she breathes fine normally but when she purrs she opens her mouth to breathe out. Other than that she is fine, still eating drinking playing. It is odd.

    If she has to has the endoscopy, so be it - we just want to be prepared for the cost of it!

    is this your first cat? Had cats in my life since birth....they all have weird traits. My cat used to stick her tongue out when purring. It's like their sex face, I'm sure you've just wasted your money on this but hey ho.

    P.s. I am extremely allergic to cats now (been tested).

    This might give you some idea, we used this company for our dog as he had a tumor on his gum, it has cost nearly £3,500 so far but luckily he is insured.

    I have had cats all my life. She has never done it before so I don't know if it's a trait...

    We have not booked the endoscopy yet, we are leaving it a few weeks to decide or see if things improve / deteriorate
